Laura Ender believes in dirt and hugs. Her son often spends the afternoon without pants, and occasionally covered in yogurt. Her baby daughter’s greatest ambition is to dunk her hands in Mommy’s coffee.
Laura Ender used to go to therapy but now she just draws cartoons. She has a dog and a cat and six chickens and a husband who does most of the work around here. Her favorite color is orange and her favorite comfort foods all involve cheese. She’s been to something like eleven countries and fifteen states, not counting airport layovers. She admires Tina Fey and Julia Child and people who know how to get stains out of carpets.
